After this month’s study of the Hornbeam*, the desiccation of the drought and the advancement of ‘Fool’s Autumn’ was all too evident. Thus here I felt the need to use the cross-processing filter in the Lumix D6 to cast some cool blue tones…
The recent short spell of rain is only enough to fill a puddle and not nearly sufficient to satisfy the Silver birches. Lime trees however are better able to cope.
It has been a week of war memories. A centenary has passed since the start of World War 1 and yesterday was 69 years since Hiroshima. In Tavistock Square, people gathered to remember this event but in so doing we cannot help but also recall the thousands who suffered and died in Japanese prisoner of war camps.
The coppery tones of the ornamental fruit trees barely cool in the vintage cast of cross-processing history.
